Hi all. I haven't posted here for a while, since I mainly use BIAB for songwriting and use instruments played by my producer and myself on my recordings. But this week I dredged up an old song that I still like and tried it out with some RealTracks (I forget which style, classy something, jazz piano, bass, and drums). It sounded good so I brought in Roger to add a clean hollow-body electric part. The vocal is still a bit rough and the mix needs work, but I decided to share since this is 75% BIAB, which still amazes me. Wonderful product. Time to upgrade and get some fresh styles!

Comments are welcome.

Thanks,
Bruce Irving

Good job. BIAB is truly amazing, isn't it! Thanks for sharing.

Nice smooth jazzy lounge feel. Nice recording.

Janice said she could dance in the kitchen while listening to this: Translation -> good song! Mellow but also has a bit of an edge.
Could hear Diana Krall doing this number.

Thanks for the listen and for the kind comments. For reference (since I now realize we should provide these sorts of details), here's what I used on this track.

Tempo is 100 bpm
Style _J085_BD Classy easy swing ballad (85 RS)
~481 Bass, acoustic jazz
~487 Piano, acoustic jazz ballad
RD JazzBrushesSticks

The guitar is a Gretsch hollow-body, not sure of the specific type, played clean into the Cakewalk UA-1G USB audio interface I use for recording (PC is Toshiba Qosmio X775 lap-crusher if you're interested). The DAW is Sonar X1 (d I think). I imported the rendered, normalized audio tracks from BIAB to Sonar and used them mostly straight, though I actually imported three different "takes" from BIAB. I mostly used the third take but grabbed a few bars of piano from the other takes for parts that went better with the melody at some point.

I also imported the RealDrums MIDI track and used that for guidance in adding a few strategic cymbal hits using the jazz kit from EZDrummer.

I'm not a jazz singer and I don't think I'm getting the right swing feel in this vocal. I will try a few more takes when my allergies subside. I was listening to some Sinatra in the car last night for inspiration.

Hi Bruce,

I found this a very pleasant, easy-to-listen-to song. In fact, I'm going back for another listen right now!

All the best,
Noel

Sounds great to me!

Your vocal is super so I would say that you could pass as a jazz singer.

Great lounge music!
